Perry House

The Perry House was purchased by Bryn Mawr College in 1962 from the Perry family. Originally serving as a Spanish language house, in the 1970s African-American students and members of The Sisterhood advocated to have use of the house for self-selective housing and their request was granted. Perry House also became home to the Black Cultural Center and Library, which was revitalized in 2005.

Over the years, eligibility to live in the house has been expanded to members of The Sisterhood, BaCASO, and Mujeres. In addition to housing, the Perry House has provided students with event space for club meetings, dinners and food demos, parties, and most importantly, bonding and community building. Perry has become a safe space for students who choose to live, work, and socialize in the house. And although Perry serves as a resource and community for students of color, it has hosted gatherings that welcome and bring our larger campus community together to celebrate the diverse cultural experiences represented at Bryn Mawr.
